College Fair at HACC to feature more than 130 colleges and universities
HARRISBURG – More than 130 colleges and universities from up and down the East Coast will participate in the annual Pennsylvania Association for College Admission Counseling (PACAC) college fair from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5, in the Cooper Student Center at HACC’s Harrisburg Campus.
The free, public event returns for the 36th year to HACC, One HACC Drive, offering information to anyone contemplating the many options available in higher education.
The fair will feature two seminars on topics of primary interest to the college-bound student.
Carol Handlan of PHEAA (Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency) will lead the seminar, “Paying for College.” Handlan will address the financial aid application process, as well as help students and parents understand the right time to start the financial aid process.
Liz Stager, admissions specialist for the Harrisburg Campus, will lead “Selecting the College That’s Right for You.” Stager will focus on topics such as how to identify a student’s area of interest and what different colleges have to offer.
Both seminars will be offered from 6:15-6:45 p.m. and again from 7:15-7:45 p.m., giving participants the opportunity to attend each seminar.
